Combating Tax Avoidance in the EU: Harmonization and Cooperation in Direct Taxation

About this book:
Combating Tax Avoidance in the EU is the first and only book to provide a complete detailed analysis of the Anti-Tax Avoidance Package jointly with other recent and ongoing European actions taken in direct taxation. Following each Member State's need to rebuild a strong and stable economy after the 2007 financial crisis, the European Union (EU) has developed a robust new transparency framework with binding anti-abuse measures and stronger instruments to challenge external threats of base erosion. This book makes clear that taxation has come to the centre of the EU political debate, and that the importance given to tax harmonization and the speed at which it is taking place will put EU Tax rules at the very core of all tax systems.

What's in this book:
With contributions from both prominent tax academics and Spanish delegates to the European meetings where the EU tax rules are debated and promulgated, the book covers such issues and topics as the following:

• The development of the EU Strategy towards Aggressive Tax Planning;
• The recent tax-related jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice;
• The Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive;
• Tax treaties and non-tax treaties with tax consequences both between the Member States and between the Member States and third countries;
• Code of conduct for business taxation;
• Automatic exchange of information;
• Country-by-country reporting;
• Arbitration in tax matters;
• External strategy for effective taxation regarding non-EU countries;
• Competition and state aid developments in direct taxation;
• The Common Consolidated Tax Base; and
• Digital significant presence and permanent establishment.

How this will help you:
As the EU pursues its ambitious tax agenda, taxation's contribution to EU growth and competitiveness and its part in relations with the rest of the world will come into ever-clearer focus. In addition to its insights into these trends, the book's unparalleled practical information and analysis will be of great value to tax practitioners dealing with investment analysis, tax planning schemes and other features of the current international tax landscape. The internal and purposive view of the rules will help readers interpret and match the resulting rules and the directives' preliminary approaches.
